Avocado + Banana + Mango protein treatment

Hair post alert!!!

Hi all I bring to you guys one of my avocado deep conditioning protein treatment.

I know its a weekday and I normally do this during the week-end but last night, fortunately for me I feel down the stairs so i was stuck in be bed most of the day to rest my poor poor back ;)
And I just took my yarn braids out after one month last week-end all i did was wash it with my dudu osun and conditioned with Hello Hydration Herbal Essences..

I was rocking my braid out the whole of this week and I'm pretty sure my hair is in dire need of  some TLC



1 Medium Avocado
1 jar of puréed  Banana and Mango baby food
Half a table spoon of Wheat Germ Oil
Half a table spoon of Castor Oil
Half a table spoon of Vitamin E Oil
10 drops of Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil

Cut in half your Avocado and spoon both half's into your blender.

Open your purée jar into the blender as-well, add water into the empty jar and shake to get the bit left behind out. Then you blend. (I recommend puréed banana or banana and mango because they are smooth enough to apply to your hair without having bits and chunks left in it(speaking from

Pour out your mixture into your container and this is where you add your oils
and you mix them all up and your good to go..

This one of the ways I mess around with my avocado protein treatment.

I would love to here your opinions on avocado protein treatment if you have tried it and if you haven't would you try it out in the future?

I can only say this for my self I love it and so does my hair...

And as always do not forget to carry out a strand test.

Happy Reading!!!

Sweet Potato Fritters

I know it has been a while I posted any thing about cooking. Fear not for I have come with a quick simple recipe. Great for cocktails parties, quick yet simple and delicious dinners (well for students shall I say ;) who know)  kiddies parties and so many more..
Ok lets get into it.

What you will need, in this post I used 3 Sweet potatoes (you can use as many as you want depending on the crowd).


3 Sweet Potatoes
2 Garlic (roughly chopped)
1 Can of Chopped Tomatoes
4 Onions
Tea spoon Curry
Tea spoon Black Peppercorns
As you know or didn't know I'm Nigerian we season with the eye
Seasoning Salt


In the steps below I rinsed the potatoes and i peeled it with the peeler and cut both ends as you will see below.


I cut them into chunky medium strips for the same cooking time


 This is the finished product :D cooking time 45-50 mins..Now if you do not have the patience you can fry the Sweet potato.. so its a very flexible dish..
This was accompanied with my onion sauce...YUMMM!!!

Presentation of some sort. I wrapped a news paper in a cone like shape to give the street food effect and the onion sauce was dished in a mortar
Yes Pestle & Mortar it fit its purpose i wanted :)
